Summer Pregnancy Skincare Secrets from a Pro


Guest Editor: Kristen Diamond, Beauty and Lingerie Buyer

Warmer weather means manis, pedis and lots of moisturizing so I reached out to Kristen, our resident beauty guru, to get the round-up of her favorite products that are safe for moms-to-be. You may recognize Kristen from We’re Expecting Too; she is currently pregnant with her second child, a girl!GRAs told by Kristen:

I am so excited to have another baby! I have a three-year-old son, Ryan, so when we found out I was having a girl, we were ecstatic; I have had so much fun decorating her room and picking out her little outfits already!

As a soon-to-be second time mom and the beauty and skincare buyer for Motherhood Maternity and A Pea in the Pod, I have a lot of experience with pregnancy-safe products. The brands we carry offer formulas that are free of all of the harsh chemicals and effective, which is why I use them even when I am not pregnant. Here are my must-haves:Pregnancy Skin Care EssentialsNail Polish: Maintaining a mani and pedi is a must in the summer! I do my own and love the Butter London Nail Lacquer since it’s 3-Free. A great summer shade is “Poole.” Their top coat also works really well and because it lacks many of the harsh chemicals other nail polishes have, the scent is not strong.

Body Scrub: Exfoliate! I am currently obsessed with the Honest Sea Salt and Sugar Body Scrub. It is amazing and I use it all of the time! It smells great and leaves you super soft.

Body Oil: Keeping your skin hydrated during the summer is important! I go back and forth between the Basq Lavender Oil and The Honest Company Body Oil. They both soak in really well and have a nice scent. I always drink tons of water, too, to keep hydrated.

Lip Balm: I love The Honest Company Lip Balm Trio and I keep them everywhere because I am a fanatic about using lip balm. No one wants dry lips, especially when pregnant!

Sun Block: I am crazy about using sun block on my son and myself. The Nine Natural Sunscreen is a great option, as is the Honest sun stick that we carry, which makes it so easy to lotion tiny faces on-the-go!

Facial Wipes: I can’t get enough of facial wipes! I keep the Honest 3-in-1 Facial Towelettes and Mama Mio Gorgeous Glow Swipes in my beach bag so I always feel fresh. I use them on Ryan all of the time too! The Honest ones also take off eye makeup really well.

For Some Extra Pampering: Mama Mio Lucky Legs  instantly cools and relaxes your legs; great for after a long day at the beach or pool and chasing after a toddler!
